YDS Endowed Funds

Thank you for your interest in supporting one of our many endowed funds at YDS. 

The links below will take you to websites to make a direct donation to the fund of your choice. This is a list of our most current active fundraising efforts. If your fund of interest is not listed here, you may make a donation through the Divinity School’s main giving page, noting your specific scholarship fund as an “Other” designation. Follow the link and instructions at the bottom of this page.

We encourage all donors to register for an account to expedite your giving process as well as view your open pledges and a summary of past contributions. After clicking on any fund linked below, you will find the “Login” button in the upper right of the fund’s giving page. Registering is optional. You can still make a gift without logging in. If you are a Yale alumna/alumnus, an account also gives you access to the online alumni directory.
